when you thought that H20 was going to be
the last of it's kind cause Laurie (Jamie
Lee Curtis) beheaded her biological
maniac brother Michael, the story
explains that Michael (Brad Loree)
knocked a paramedic unconcious and then
put his clothes and mask on him to make
her think it was him and then Laurie/Kate
was locked away and never spoke a word
Michael tracks her down and kills her.
back in Haddonfield Illinois, an
ambitious entrepreneur by the name of
Freddy Harris (Busta Rhymes) wants to
make some money on the Myers house by
making a real internet film event called
Dangertainment in which six local college
students participate as part of the
They have to spend the night at the house
as a scholarship is offered by Freddie
whoever can survive the most in the house
by not being scared away.
the people Freddie hired to scare the
students is dressed as Michael Myers as a
joke to scare them away but however the
real Michael Myers returns to the house
and kills people one by one and then one
of the survivors named Sarah (Bianca
Kajlich) asks one of the internet viewers
to help her to escape from him by going
online with one of them.
H20 promised to be the last one as Laurie Strode's plan was to kill off Michael Myers for good and she did just that in the end. I just couldn't understand as to why this one resurfaced since Resurrection was a perfect title to it all.
I enjoyed this one
better than H20 as it had more happening
in it and more excitement too.
The story opens up with Laurie Strode acting like a basket case in a psych ward staring dazedly at a window which makes you wonder as to why she's in there but that's when two nurses have a discussion about her killing the wrong person which describes on how Michael did this and I was thinking to myself "RIIIGHT"
The scene's looked exciting when Michael breaks into the ward trying to kill her but she sets a trap for him and tells him he failed cause she's not afraid of him.
Yet we all know that is too easy to put an end to him so soon as there's some bad writing and unwise choices during this moment when Laurie gets killed off. Nothing is explained as to what has happened to her son as if he never existed.
Then the story moves forward with the lead character Freddie Harris really getting into the hype of his internet reality show on the Myers house and who will be the lucky contestants to go there which is another unwise choice since that Michael is still on the loose.
There's a nervous winner named named Sarah Moyer reluctant to participate in which she has every right to.
In another scene there's a flakey security surveillance watcher named Nora being distracted by making some coffee while one of the crew members move some stuff into the Myers house which Michael of course kills this dude off then Nora returns after this incident which seems to be a traditional moment for a slasher film on the killer being sneaky about stuff.
There's great exiciting moments with the winning contestants entering the Myers house and spotting creepy props set there to make things creepy and the setting were perfect to watch.
There's also some slapstick moments with Freddie dressed as Michael and then talking to the real one thinking it's someone else by giving him a hard time telling him that he's playing Michael for the show. This could offer some chuckles.
There's even a teenage couple making out which is a perfect target for Michael to kill since we know about teenagers being naughty and dirty to be one of the first to die
and there's even funny moments when supposed corspes fall down on them and they're fake. You think at first that they'll be safe but then Michael comes in when you least expect.
Another good quote in the story is when Freddy explains to others that reality shows aren't real else they'd be boring which is a fact which is why he dressed as Michael to scare others so the viewers can get a kick out of watching his show. When this happens you wonder who is the real Michael which will be a perfect target to these teens.
The adventure and terror really heats up when Sarah tries to escape from Michael and talks to her internet buddy Dekker on how to escape from him in which
Dekker's friends thinks is all an act. It goes to show when something really happens that's bad that no one believes it. Still the suspense piles up when Dekker believes that this is really happening and his friends are in suspense as well. Alot of this was pretty creepy to watch.
There's some classic ninja fighting with Freddy against Michael and other moments making you think that this film puts an end to Michael once and for all but if you watch very closely to the very end a door opens up for another sequel which it sadly didn't no thanks to a fucking remake by Rob Zombie. I almost hoped the sequels would keep happening till Michael was 100 years of age.
Bottom line is that this film was fun mainly taking place inside the Myers deserted house which is what a Halloween sequel should be since it all started there in the first place. The film was quite entertaining even if it seemed pointless to do another one since Michael finally put an end to his biological sister and now is just killing anyone.
Although the film
is a bit better than H20 the acting
isn't. Bianca Kaljich (Sarah Moyer) seemed to just have the pretty girl looks to grab attention to the audience but yet she does show a sensitivity and shyness to her character in which she portrays quite well. Does well approaching someone else and acting soft spoken telling him that she's dropping out which looked nice and mellow. She reacts well with her frightening
reactions trying to get away and talking
to someone online to try and escape from Michael which looked realisitic but then her acting lacked in other
scene's of the film like her getting scared which didn't look believeable at all. Yet when there's scene's when she gets scared or acting anxious she seems to lack a bit wit her characteristics doping all of this. It isn't overly terrible though.
However rapper Busta Rhymes (Freddie Harris) steals
the show with his dynamic performance as
the director of the reality internet show
bringing his character to life. He brings on a terrific charisma like a terrific outgoing businessman trying to make everyone feel good about themselves as well as having a nice aggressive attitude too for when the terror really happens to him. He also does well by sweet talking to someone to stay with his show while he hears that person is dropping out as he looked believeably charming. A nice aggressive moment on him by telling the real Michael Myers off on who will be dressed as Michael which was believeably humorous on how this was all done since he thought that person was one of the actors. Has a nice fast paced speaking explaining towards the contestants about why he's dressed as Michael and scaring people on his reality show which he believeably draws his point with good energy. I loved his battle with the Michael character which looked highly energised and nicely choreographed with his martial arts as well as great moments on him jumping on this maniac by trying to fight him. Also does a terrific job by getting aggressive on a news camera explaining what Michael is and letting them know how he feels by
hitting the news camera which showed terrific energy too.
Ryan Merriman (Myles 'Deckard' Barton) played a perfect internet geek in which he looked sharp for the part and really brought alot of spunk and energy to his role in what he had to do in the film showing great anxious moments while trying to help an innocent victim escape. He brings all of this together marvellously.
Daisy McCracken (Donna Chang) looked like that she was fresh out of the modelling academy with her performace. She does well the odd time
but when she discovers Michael it is not
at all believeable when she starts to
freak out. She was fairly wooden most of the time when she was supposed to have picked up the pace and doesn't. She offers a fake scream and expression on her which could've looked more convincing when she is attacked by the Michael character.
Dan Joffre (Willie) certainly portrayed a great outgoing partying type of fellow who is in the reality show in which he really studied his part well and bringing it on as one of those nice guy next door types.
We also get a one final appearance by Jamie
Lee Curtis (Jamie Lloyd) in the
very beginning of the film showing her
anger towards Michael. She also performed well and believeably looked like a basket
case just sitting in her bed in an asylum and staring at the window. There's a great gruff speaking with her on top of a roof towards the Michael character by being hung upside down and her slowly walking towards him which looked impressive. She really brought out great characterisitcs as a basket case suddenly losing her happiness alltogether. Unfortunately
Michael kills her but Jamie wanted that so she can say goodbye to her
fame in the horror films which was only a
stepping stone to her career as a movie

does a fine job in it especially during
